Mason:  Oh yeah?

Jason:  Yeah, you know what? I was talking to Devan earlier today and she told me that Amanda likes me, which is great because, you know, I like Amanda.

Mason:  Really?

Jason:  Yeah! You didn’t know that?

Mason:  Dude, I didn’t know.

Jason:  Oh yeah, I have the biggest crush on her.

Mason:  For real?

Jason:  Oh yeah.

Mason:  That girl’s like my sister, dude. So, you know, treat her right.

Jason:  Oh yeah!

Mason:  Because she’s a special girl.

Jason:  She’s great. I mean, I would definitely treat her right. So yeah, Devan told me that she liked me so I walked her home, and then I kinda tried to kiss her when we got to her door.

Mason:  Whoa, dude. What happened?

Jason:  I don’t know…I usually have a pretty high success rate of trying to make out with ladies, but she wasn’t into it and she said that we should take it slow, which is cool with me, man.

Mason:  She’s a lady.

Jason:  Yeah, absolutely. A courtship. It’ll be delightful.

Mason:  Uh-huh. You got any dates planned?

Jason:  Uh, no. You got any suggestions?

Mason:  You know, man, I’m telling you what, she loves Hot Dog on a Stick.

Jason:  Is that so?

Mason:  I’m telling you! Last time I talked to her about it, she was really excited about it. Kept asking me questions. It seemed like her favorite thing ever.

Jason:  Well that’s weird, but sounds good to me.

Mason:  Yeah.

Jason came over to Mason’s place to hang out and drink some beers. He tells Mason that he recently found out that Amanda likes him. He tried to kiss her and she said she wants to take it slow.

Mason warns Jason to be nice to Amanda because he cares about her. He says that she’s like his sister. Mason and Jason agree that Amanda is lady and deserves to be wooed properly.

Mason suggests that Jason take Amanda to Hot Dog on a Stick. He says that she got really excited last time he talked to her about it so it must be her favorite thing. What he doesn’t realize is that she got excited because she was jealous of the fact that he went on a date with a girl who worked there!

Do you think Jason can actually win Amanda if he tries? How do you think Amanda would feel if she heard Mason call her his sister?

I get that  Amanda is not into Jason . these chicks (Devan and Amanda) are very clever and  are playing cool with Jason and  Mason . Devan is hiding her real feelings  boxed in her mind  until Jason stops seeing Amanda outside the office.  It is clear to me  that Mason  was hurt  when hearing  that  his friend  has just came from Amanda´s house. Jason, you are not a good guy , stop playing tricks  with your friends.

   in short, Jason likes Amanda but Amanda also likes Mason even so Mason see Amanda like a sister

it couldn't be even worse than that you fall in love with a man who treats you as a sister.so face the truth,Amanda , if you can't be with who you love,then love who you're with. as for Mason,i wonder how high his IQ is.

JASON likes Amandaand he should take it slow just like what Amanda wantet.But how can Jason to be? if he loves her so strongly.

  Amanda does not like Jason.. If Devan didn't steer Jason wrong , Mason , Jason and Amanda wouldn't fall in to a triangle love.. Why would Devan did such a thing like that?  She is jealousy and trying to sabotage Amanda's relationship with Mason. She is rotten.. I bet one day some one will pry it out of her .. Also I think her plans would not be successed because Mason and Amanda they totally have feelings for each other.. no one can seperate them if they have the love connection between them.

I bet that Amanda would get hurt if she knew Mason called her his sister. But I am happy for her that Jason seems very fond of her. Hopefully they will have a good relationship.

That is not a love triangle that is a love square.
